Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. We can do this by practicing our suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our Twelve Traditions. Marijuana Anonymous uses the basic 12 Steps of Recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous because it has been proven that the 12 Step Recovery program works!

Please join the Monday night Conscious Contact MA meeting for our first in-person meditation meeting of the year. It will be an easy hike with 20 minutes of silent walking meditation on Sunday, August 1. We will meet at the Molalla River State Park in Canby, OR at the Cottonwood Trailhead at 11:00 AM and begin the hike at 11:15 AM.
MA phone and online meetings are also available to everyone. Visit MA-Phone.org for information on phone meetings. Visit MA-Online.org to participate in the chat room or online meetings. If you are feeling ill, please consider these options as an alternative to attending a meeting in person.
Isolation can be triggering to many addicts. If you are staying away from meetings, please reach out to other MA members and stay connected to your program by phone, email, or social media. If you don’t already have a meeting phone list consider making one, and if you do have one perhaps it could be updated if needed.
